My Muffin

17 09 2012 Thinking About

I work out regularly.

Ohhkeeey - after summer break I need to work my way back into it again...

Sometimes - very rarely though - I manage a few disciplined days in a row with limited food intake and if I am lucky, I even loose a tiny bit weight.

It shows right away.

In my face.

More wrinkles.

The area I actually want to reduce and which stays completely unimpressed by all my efforts is my belly.

My Muffin.

This big, soft area which drapes so nicely over a low waist jeans.

Do you know, what I'm talking about?

[update: I removed the link to her blog because of this. I don't want to support a blog like that with sending traffic it's way...

Well - there is for sure one person who doesn't know what I'm talking about and that is Joanna.

She seems a really nice person in fantastic shape after having three children.

Here you can no longer read how she does that.

After a plate with scampis and baguette Joanna is so full and satisfied that there wouldn't even fit in a bit of ice-cream. And right in the middle of having a delicious piece of cake her disciplined little stomach signals her: Oh - STOP - I have ENOUGH!

I'm in awe - and of course jealous - because MY body would NEVER do that...

But envy doesn't melt belly fat either, I realize... 

So, maybe this video shows the way to deal with the matter but I think I lack the amount of self-confidence it would need to take on that way...


And then my adorable and lovely daughter showed me the solution while cuddling in bed at night time the other day: "I love to rest my head on your pretty Mommy-Muffin!", she said.

Sometimes all you have to do is just changing the perspective and see a "problem" from a different kind of angle, accept a nice compliment, listen more to your wonderful kids and all of the sudden it's - well, not exactly gone - but a LOT better.

Enjoy your food - ALWAYS

XOXO, Anette
